Weekly Black & White Square Photo

Cumberland Station

This weeks B&W photo is just a little different. Obviously you can see that. My purpose for this photo was to create an image that has a look or a sense of being old.

First, this photo was taken with a DSLR and an 18 - 70mm lens at 1/80 sec & f/5.6. In Photoshop Elements I converted it to a B&W image, cropped it for the square look and re-sized it for web viewing. I then gave it an antique look , added some vignetting and finished it off with a touch of shapening.

I kind'a like this photo and I think it does have an old look to it, which is what I was trying to achieve. However, I would like to hear from you and what your thoughts are about this image; whether you like it or not and why. If you would leave a comment below I would be very grateful for it. Thanks.

Yeah, this is my old world view of the Cumberland Station (Western Maryland Station) and you are welcome to it.


  1. Glenn this is absolutely AWESOME!

    I enjoy all of your work but you have great talent for B & W. I really liked the pump house as well, and the church steeple is a favorite too. You still need to sign "Pole Cat" for me.

  2. wow, the hubby just saw this from across the room and said. "Look at that picture, the sepia really works for that doesn't it?"

    ahaha so yes, I think that you did a great job and it totally works!
